It was a three-day weekend. You might have missed some stuff. Here it is:
1. Inauguration Day! Barack Obama was sworn in for his second term as President of the United States of America. The best part was probably when Kelly Clarkson turned "My Country 'Tis of Thee" into a song that 14-year-olds will now want to use for their American Idol auditions, and Beyonce tried to make sure she didn't get left in Kelly Clarkson's dust by doing a superfluous vocal run during the National Anthem. Oh, I was the only one who considers all that a highlight? My bad.
2. Harbowl! Football happened this weekend. The penultimate games before the Super Bowl, when The San Francisco 49ers, coached by Jim Harbaugh, will play the Baltimore Ravens, coached by John Harbaugh. YES. BROTHERS. Blah blah blah, Jacob, Esau, sibling rivalry, daddy loves me more, blah. This is all just fodder while we wait with bated breath for the Beyoncé halftime show, which will be sponsored by Pepsi and feature "the world's FIRST crowdsourced halftime intro." Whatever that means. Congrats on using digital jargon that none of Beyoncé's fans care about, Pepsi. You could learn a lot from GQ...
3. GQ Magazine recently named Beyoncé the hottest woman of the 21st Century. That's saying a lot, since we're only 13 years into the century, but I guess we can give them a pass since it's hard to sell magazines in this day and age. That must also be why they released this video of their Beyoncé cover shoot, so that the good young people of the Internets can GIF her to their hearts' content. Because this is how we live now.
Tell me this story is stupid and you love Beyoncé as much as you love Daily Grace: @mariaalana.
